I just found out that my T12 is fractured from MVA little less than a month ago, i hurt in that spot and feel a burning sensation. When i finally get an MRI and go to the Back doctor, what is the general solution to get this fixed? will it heal on its own? Will i possibly have to have surgery? My doctor put me on a 10lb weight limitation as of right now do you think that is going overboard, i hurt but i am still doing day to day stuff.
I am the same as you, I hurt all over lower back legs ect,not worked for 7 months due to pain, they tell me I have a prolapsed disc, will I have to have surgery?, hope I soon have something or I may go mad with the pains. Due to see the Doc tomorrow what will he say and what do I ask of him, only to get rid of these pains.
i m in the same boat as both of you. had a snow accident last weekend, and found out i have fractures on my L1 an T12, been putting ice and heat on it and it seems to help however i have been on bed rest for the last week as well. as far as meds go i am taking daladid which is a morphine substitute, along with vicodine. neighther one takes the pain away completely, but the let me sleep. good luck to all of us!
